Gone!

Gone, just like that! I can't believe someone stole SK's new bicycle. It was parked in the basement carpark, in a secured condominium.

SK had recently bought it using his hard earned money as a packer. The bike was chained up but due to lack of space in the carpark, it wasn't chained to any post.

Out of the hundreds of bikes, the thief had to pick the gleaming new one. I had advised SK to leave it in our balcony but he thought it should be safe to park in the basement.

The security guard said it was still in the basement this afternoon when he did his rounds. It had been stolen just hours ago. Many contractors come in and out daily to do renovation work, repair work and so forth, someone could have conveniently carted it away in a van or truck.

Geez, this is so sickening.

Damn that really really sux, especially when it was bought with his own money. But yeah, it's best to chain it up to something. :\

I'm sorry to hear abt SK's loss! It's awful to lose something but worse when it's something u worked for. But mayb this will make him realise the wisdom of your suggetsion of keeping a brand new bike inside yr home. That way, it won't tempt the unscrupulous.
